You can use the Advanced Title Search to do this. Next to the main search box is a drop-down - click on that and select Advanced Search, then click on Advanced Title Search.

Check the formats that you want, then at the bottom choose to display based on A-Z Ascending.

Because if you ask ten people, they might have ten ideas for what the list should include. Do you mean all titles? Do you want to exclude foreign language? Do you want to include documentary? Do you just want major feature films or small independent films count too? On and on...If you just want all titles, don't choose to include/exclude anything. Then it's not complicated...it'll just give you everything.

If you just want a list of the titles you can download them via one of the sites here: http://www.imdb.com/interfaces. But that will be just the names - no links to the site.

You don't need many variables to get a complete list - as my link shows, you have one filter (to set the title type to movie) and a sort (to get the a-z). The advanced search just gives you all the options you can get, but if you want to keep it simple you can ignore most of it, but some people like the ability to set a minimum number of votes, for example, or to change the way the results are sorted (so you could do it by votes to get all the top movies, or the bottom ones).
